It's difficult to separate Sami Dinar from his Beverly Hills store. He seldom leaves the building. It is nearly 8:30 p.m. and the store has been closed for hours. Yet Dinar, stylishly dressed in a suit by the Italian designers Dolce & Gabbana and still handsomely groomed after a long day, is in his tiny, 1,500-square-foot space on Brighton Way. He has just finished working with a regular after-hours customer.

Model Christy Turlington and actor Woody Harrelson did a good deed for fashion without knowing it. They helped Elizabeth Minetree launch an accessories business. It began last spring when fashion stylist Minetree designed silky Jacquard vests with unusual buttons for the waiters at Piazza Rodeo cafe.

When is slouchy and sloppy considered stylish? When menswear designers turn simple blazers, over-shirts and cardigan sweaters into oversized Hefty bags and start calling them fashionable. Baggy blazers devoid of construction and sweaters that hang to the knee are turning up in the collections of many young designers, who hope to convince men that bigger really is better. But not necessarily cheaper; some of these looks can cost up to $600.
